edX course Real-Time bluetooth Networks - Shape the World

Recommended Posts

There is an edX course coming up in September from the University of Texas in Austin - this time with MSP432 or TM4C123 LaunchPad.  The parts list also includes the CC2650 and Educational BoosterPack MK-II.  The syllabus includes BLE and RTOS.  It is taught by Jonathan Valvano and Ramesh Yerraballi who have offered a course using the TM4C123 on edX in the past.

@@Fmilburn - I registered for that a couple of months ago (just doing the free audit) so I'll definitely be attending - are you?  It will probably be good to set up a thread to discuss during the course (although I assume there will be something on the edX site).  

The course covers a couple of topics that I've been very interested in but have had a hard time getting into - so I'm definitely looking forward to it.

Signed too. I've been wanting to learn more on ROTS. Though with 7 classes I probably will only watch it later in vacation... (funny enough I will have real time systems this semester but not specifically RTOS)

The course started yesterday and the content of the first couple of videos is very familiar :).  I haven't gotten very far but I am not sure it is going to be what I thought it would be.

 

Separately I received my CC2650 BoosterPack module in the mail today - which will be used in the course.  I need to figure out something to do with that second module.  In the photo below the module soldered on the BoosterPack is far left.  The module PCB blends in with the BoosterPack PCB so it is hard to tell the size.  At bottom right the second module that comes in the box is flipped upside down to show the pins - scale in cm.

nice!  Those FCC certified modules make things convenient.  They started with the CC3100MOD a while back and now they have the CC2650MOD.  I vaguely recall Trey German using that CC2650MOD (I think, or something like it?) in his upcoming product he's making (now that he's not working @ TI any longer)...

Hey guys, I'm also taking the course. Not sure though about the Bluetooth module though... a bit pricey especially with the dollar so strong (against Brazilian Real) right now. Let's see, maybe later I will bite the bullet.

Waiting on the I/O booster pack thingy to arrive.

 

Good luck and fun to all!
